Men's Fashion Faux Pas?

A quick errand to a local store recently left me scratching my head. Did I really just see that? What was that? And this wasn't even a Walmart!

What ever happened to men's fashion?

Now I admit that I'm not the classiest dresser in the world; I like bluejeans and plaid shirts,  but I've also dressed it up a notch with dress slacks, shirt and tie. And while I will lounge around the house in pyjama pants and a t-shirt, I don't believe in going out in public dressed like that. Maybe I'm just somewhat old fashioned, but again, did I really just see that? What was that? As someone once said, "It's a strange new world." For me, that mantra was yet again confirmed today.

Now if you really want to be confused even more, Google "Men's Spring Fashions 2018." If I didn't know better, I'd think they are modeling halloween costumes. Men in skirts appears to be a common new theme. Huh? What am I missing here?

Call me a prude, but what ever happened to the Cary Grant's of yesteryear? Now there was a man who knew how to dress like a man and not a clown. Please understand that I am not suggesting that men need to dress like they did in the golden age of film, but in my humble opinion (and last I checked, we're still all entitled to those) even jeans and t-shirts would be more acceptable than what seems to be paraded on the so-called fashion runways of today.

Lord help us!
